Hydraulic and Pneumatic Pressure Intensifiers
Up to 14.000 bar (200,000 psi) working pressure
Hydraulic Intensifiers up to 30 l volume displacement
• Air driven liquid pumps / pneumatic powered pressure intensifier convert simple air pressure into high and ultra high liquid pressures by utilizing a large area piston on the air side to move a small area plunger and compressing the liquid into very high hydraulic pressures – up to 4.140 bar (60,000 psi) as standard, and as high as 14.000 bar on special request.
Actuated by compressed air (maximum 7 or 10 bar), the pressure delivered by the liquid side can be adjusted with a manual precision regulator or an automatic proportional pressure regulating valve. These pumps are suitable for explosion-proof system, not needing any electric power supply.
• Hydraulic powered pressure intensifiers can be used for liquids and gases in a continuous or discontinuous operation mode and are driven by hydraulic power unit. They convert hydraulic pressure (usually 210 bar or 350 bar) to high and ultra high liquid pressure, modifying the outlet pressure simply by varying hydraulic pressure. With flexibility in design we can deliver intensifiers with single or double high pressure heads, one or more units can be powered from the same hydraulic unit.
The structure of these intensifiers allow reliable operation and high lifetime, with simple maintenance and easy service.
Hand Pumps and Spindle Pumps
Hand pumps up to 2.800 bar (40,000 psi), spindle pumps up to 14.000 bar (200,000 psi)
• Hand pumps are offered in single-speed or two-speed versions for faster filling, delivering pressure up to 2.800 bar. They are suitable for many testing applications and also to be used as an industrial tool, allowing easy, quick and effortless bearing and shaft dismounting. High strength steel construction is more economical option but stainless steel construction is also available.
• Hybrid liquid pumps (manual + air driven) are similar to air driven liquid pumps but they are equipped with hand lever to allow also manual acting. These pumps are mostly suitable for portable units, allowing automatic but also manual operation mode, or the combination of both. A perfect example is using pneumatic drive to fill and pressurize something and after achieving the set pressure, to rise pressure manually for a smoother control. These pumps offer maximum 860 bar or 2.200 bar.
• Spindle pumps are suitable for generating with high precision high static pressures (up to 14.000 bar) in small volumes, without a stick-slip effect. Robust construction offers high lifetime.
Spindle pumps are also available with an electric motor drive, with additional stepper motor or synchronous motor added. For precise control, each pump is equipped with a position sensor to indicate the position of the piston. With this construction a higher stroke volume can be achieved than with manually operated pumps. Corresponding electrical control provided on request.
